The collection of icons in the Museum of Ancient Russian Art at Kolomenskoye, in the south-east of Moscow, is the most remarkable in the world. Assembled during the Revolution, it ranges in date from the reign of Ivan the Terrible to the early 20th century and includes complete sets from churches since ruined or destroyed. This catalogue features 60 superb colour reproductions of the finest of these works, while the text by the museum's curator explains their historical, artistic and religious significance.
